In January 2011, The Public Safety Commission will allow for nearly 650,000 drivers who have not paid the necessary surcharge penalties will be offered a
one-time amnesty. This amnesty will offer those with convictions for DWI the opportunity to save thousands of dollars. The amnesty period runs only through April 17, 2011. This applies to convictions from September 2004 to December 2008.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get out of the vicious cycle of your surcharge responsibility. If you or a loved one have been convicted of one the offenses and you are currently in default with the surcharge, contact
